Sold my maggies and moved my bookies into my office so my current listening room is naked and only has my main headphone and turntable rig setup.
It’s 12 ft x 10 ft x 9 ft in size (spare basement bedroom) and I sit ~ 9 feet away but can by 8-10 feet depending on how much the speeks need to be moved from the wall.
Really just searching for suggestions at this point that i can start researching and seeking out to demo. My initial short list is:
Zu Dirty Weekends
ELAC Uni-Fi Reference UFR52
Klipsch Heresey IV
Totem Acoustics Forest or Wind
Wharfdale Evo 4.4
Budget is somewhere between $1k - $3.5k for the pair and will target used if possible. I’m toying with the idea of getting an efficient set of towers to pair with a SET amp but not sure yet.
It needs to be a solid performer in a smallish room, decent value technically for the money… I’m biased against JBL/Klipsch/Horns but am a bit curious at the new Hereseys. I would prefer something that is a bit warmer but am not opposed to a lively tweeter just not sibilant. Not planning to buy a sub so a bit of bass punch/extension would be welcomed.
Let me know if you have any other suggestions?
